PC Material Properties - Polycarbonate

PC Material Summary

Polycarbonate (PC) is common in the safety industry due to its very high impact strength and colourless appearance. Because of this, it is used in headlights, safety equipment and in machinery guards. PC is not UV stable and will turn yellow and hazy in sunlight over time but additives will increase its resistance to UV.
